One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) is heading to Costa Rica in 2019.
Costa Rica is home to six percent of the entire world’s biodiversity and boasts more than 840 identified species of bird. Plus, more than a quarter of the country is protected national parkland. In addition to rainforests, mangroves, coral reefs and white-sand beaches, guests will have a chance to see howler monkeys, scarlet macaws and endemic species not found anywhere else.
“Photographically, Costa Rica is a dream location for amateur and professional photographers alike. It’s comparable to Antarctica—except instead of all the ice, penguins and sub-zero temperatures, it has endless beaches, mystical rainforests, stunning sunsets, sunrises and wildlife that’s like something out of a zoology textbook,” said OOE’s Photographer-in-Residence, Jeff Topham in a statement. “So truthfully, the idea of sailing and shooting there and joining One Ocean Expeditions’ team of experts in the comfort of the new RCGS Resolute, is just incredible. I’m thrilled to see the company venturing into amazing non-polar destinations. Their guests are in for a treat.”
The cruise will take place aboard OOE’s new vessel, RCGS Resolute. The 146-passenger ship features panoramic outdoor viewing decks as well as a wellness center, space for yoga sessions, a gymnasium and saltwater pool.
